LIN5-18209 : Security Advisory - linux - CVE-2014-0069

Created: Mar 2, 2014    Updated: Dec 19, 2017
Resolved Date: Apr 5, 2014
Found In Version: 5.0.1.14
Fix Version: 5.0.1.14
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 5
Component/s: Kernel

Description

The cifs_iovec_write function in fs/cifs/file.c in the Linux kernel through 3.13.5 does not properly handle uncached write operations that copy fewer than the requested number of bytes, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information from kernel memory, cause a denial of service (memory corruption and system crash), or possibly gain privileges via a writev system call with a crafted pointer.
